As per a research by Centrum Broking, Colgate's Q2FY24 print was in line. Domestic sales grew 6.6 per cent led by flat volumes. Management said, toothpaste category volumes remained flattish in rural markets, although improved sequentially.

"We note CLGT's growth was driven by its focused strategy of growing oral care category driven by newly launched formulation for its flagship product CDC (with Arginine technology). Recently CLGT launched new ad-campaign to drive twice a day brushing habits.
